My Fisrt Spiritual Quest, Change my Life

Today was my very first time ever going on a spiritual quest willingly, what i mean by this is … several time in my life i was face with spirituality form a young age my mother had put me in a bible group with week end outing
then there was time with Mormon, Jehovah witness and so on and so forth. All do  at time i did enjoy the debate i had with people of faith, i really ever instigated  the encounter and sort of force to listen …blablabla

But today was the very first time i went because i wanted too and i was genuinely interested and wanted to learn  a very pleasant experience it was, and for the present time we decided do make it a weekly pilgrimage :)

Now today was exploratory expedition in a Buddhism Monastery I wanted to see what would my impression be , so I pack my wife and kids and hop on our way it was a 1.30 hours drive the scenery was very beautiful ” i promises to take picture of the ride there” .

 

here are some picture

When we first arrive the first thing that came to mind was that I felt very at ease almost as if i finally got somewhere i was trying to get too for so long. Then it was to see the majestic outlook of the monastery

Now like i said earlier this was our first outing & we where on a exploratory expedition so i know none of the lingo, i don’t know the meaning of  any statue, scripture or anything so be patient with me “I am doing this to learn” :)

IMG_0759Then we where greeted by Buddy and the very fist thing in did was  offering  of money and with out even thinking about it i said deep inside my  “I will not be concern by money anymore i will not let money govern my life I allow myself to live my life”      WOW that was liberating, Right there and then weight was lifted

 

One thing I am realizing, is with every step forward i take in the direction of enlightenment the lighter, at ease and at peace i feel. My hole life was dictated by money in one way, form or another and now that i don’t,  that i have accepted to take down my per-conceive idea and open my self to a higher self a divine existence  i am astonish on how my inner self want to come out and liberate me i am surprise that my first tough was to state that i will not idealize money and i will embrace life, this happen on it own but i did feel the urge to sate it to my self, not to anybody else just me.

 

IMG_0762Sadhgure once said for one to be more receptive, one have to stop being full of him self

IMG_0763 After Looking & contemplating at these monk status one can be humble by the devotion these being exerted in there life

i was really excited to see more I could hear the bell humming in the air when struck , i was really eager to sit by and listen to UMH vibration of the earth and if you sat still  and paid attention you could hear earth frequency vibrating in the bell and then i felt it deep inside the vibration of earth and the sound of UMH the bell resonated they where in tune i cant explain precisely how or what i felt but it felt as if something growing inside of me and then a cricket took my attention away :p and people came by so we resume our aventure.

Then there was montain hill & step… now not that it was that difficult or physically draining but for a 280 lbs unfit man that sat on his ass for a long time not doing any exercise was really  OUFF.. im am out of shape
but that never really bother me before…. But then there was this monk i figure maybe 70 to 80 years old on my count and she outrun me the entire day walking around & up & down the mountain placing incense all over the Monastery made me think on reevaluating my take on physical well being . I dint take any picture of her i was afraid to offend her i dont know why but did want to do a faux pas aswell.

My son gave a try to meditation i am proud that he is open at the idea instead of laughing at it.
